Abstract :

When a cancer patient tests positive for Covid-19 infection, the patient's oncologist has to decide on a further treatment with careful consideration of factors such as patient’s immune status, risk benefit ratio, safety of healthcare professionals and many other factors depending on the tumor’s unique biology. Owing to the high infectivity and rapidly spreading nature of the covid-19 virus, there is little data available in order to help us arrive at the decision on the right course of treatment for cancer patients who test positive for covid-19. Special concerns are with cancer patients who are found to be persistent virus shredders and remain virus positive for more than 2 months after symptom resolution. Amidst the pandemic and all the troubles, it brings to the cancer management, organisations such as The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and many others have published guidelines in treating cancer patients to maximise benefits and minimise the adverse outcomes of the virus. In this mini-review, we have given a comprehensive overview on appropriate anti-cancer treatment courses if found covid-19 positive. A brief discussion on the management of cancer patients if they turned out to be persistent virus shedders.

Abstract :

Coronavirus is currently the hottest topic in the world. At the end of 2019, the world was shocked by the new coronavirus outbreak, namely the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). The virus's entry into the body and contact with cells mediated by protein S on the surface of the virus body, protein S as the primary determinant in infecting host species on the virus's surface. A corona or covid-19 virus infection's initial symptoms can resemble the flu, namely fever, runny nose, dry cough, sore throat, and headache. Antioxidants are compounds that can slow down or prevent the oxidation process. Antioxidants can scavenge free radicals, thereby inhibiting the oxidative mechanism, which is the cause of degenerative diseases. Antioxidants can be obtained from natural ingredients such as oils, seeds, cereals, vegetables, fruit, leaves, roots, spices, and herbs. Some types of plants that are suspected of being antioxidants are Moringa (Moringa oleifera, Lamk), Guava Leaves (Psidium guajava Linn), Legundi (Vitex trifolia L), Temulawak (Curcuma xanthorrhiza Roxb), and Ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.). Plants - These plants are believed to help maintain a healthy body from the harmful effects of Covid - 19.

Abstract :

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction occurs due to degenerative changes in bony parts of jaw joints. Patients of TMJ dysfunction present with complaints of limited mouth opening and pain. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) provides a new horizon and helps in improving the treatment opportunity for early TMJ dysfunction. This study was aimed to determine the effect of PRP injection in the management of this condition. A quasi-experimental trial was conducted at Department of Dentistry, Sandeman Provincial hospital, Quetta for 6 months. Samples of 68 candidates were included in the study who were diagnosed with this disease. PRP injection was applied in the TMJ. Pain intensity was noted at baseline before and 3 months’ injection for each candidate using visual analogue scale. Mouth Opening was also measured by measuring the distance between the two incisors at baseline and after 3 months after receiving injection. SPSS version 22 was used to analyse the data. The significant change in pain and mouth opening was assessed by applying paired sample t-test. P-value £ 0.05 was considered as significant. The mean age of patients was 43.61 ± 12.74 years. There were 23 (33.8%) male and 45 (66.2%) female candidates. The mean duration of symptoms was 16.92 ± 4.83 days. The mean pain score of all the candidates was 5.67 ± 2.31 at baseline which was reduced significantly to 0.14 ± 0.11 after 3 months of the procedure (p < 0.0001). The mean maximal mouth opening of all the candidates was 27.86 ± 4.15 mm at baseline which was improved significantly to 42.17 ± 3.19 mm after 3 months of the procedure (p < 0.0001). It has been concluded that application of platelet rich plasma can be significantly effective in reducing pain while improving mouth opening and resolving the symptoms of TMJ dysfunction.

Abstract :

Totally implantable access ports (TIAPs) are generally used in oncology patients. A total of 89 consecutive oncology patients, between 2016 to 2019 were enrolled to receive TIAP inserts via an internal jugular vein (IJV) or subclavian vein (SV). Data of early/late complications were prospectively collected. The exclusion criteria were having an active infection and coagulopathy (platelets count < 50 000/µl, INR > 2 or prothrombin time > 18s) at the time of CVAP insertion. For all the patients 8 French ports were used as CVAP and patients were randomly divided into 2 groups of CVAP venous puncture site: Subclavian or Internal jugular vein. Thirty-two patients (36%) were male and 57 (64%) were female. The median age of participants was 55. Chemotherapy ports were implanted through Subclavian and jugular vein in 47(52.8%) and 42 (47.2%) patients respectively. No differences were found in early and late complication rates. In conclusion, we observed that both implantation approaches were feasible and safe. If the circumstances do not permit a puncture of the jugular vein, or if the jugular vein should be preserved for central venous lines, a fluoroscopy-guided or also sonographically guided puncture of the subclavian vein can be a safe alternative.

Abstract :

Ankle fracture is one of the most common injury encountered by orthopedic surgeon. It can be resulted by simple twisting injury of ankle and also in high energy trauma from motor-vehicles accident. Concomitant tibio-talar dislocation following ankle fracture have been reported as many as 21% to 36% of ankle fractures and warrant early intervention and usually is associated with deltoid ligaments injury. However, until now the management of ankle fracture dislocation associated with deltoid ligament injury is still in debate. We report a case of 23 years old gentleman who involved in a motor-vehicle accident and sustained right lateral malleolus fracture with ankle dislocation. He underwent a close manual reduction (CMR) but failed as the post CMR X-ray shown that the ankle remains subluxated. Subsequently proceeded with plating of right fibula and deltoid ligaments repair using anchor sutures. Patient outcomes were reassessed with American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle score (AOFAS) at three months and six months’ post-operative and the result were 81% and 95% respectively.
